Take a trip to Union Station and travel back in time with some of the decorations and side buildings. Banks that are no longer used, the old style signs for the Bar and restaurant. Take Pictures and look around.

Whether you're catching a train or not, Union Station is great piece of 1930s architecture. The artwork and murals are fantastic.

Peace of art, it is unbelievable that building is dated 1930 and still looks the same, perfectly restored but kept old charm, still original floor, waiting area as well as original ticket kiosk... Definitely walk back in time

Beautifully maintained just as it was in the 1930's. A must visit for a walk back in time. Ride the Metro or Amtrac and check it out.

If you love old buildings, you definitely need to stop by here! All the furniture is still the original Art Deco style as well as the “kiosks” and decor.

While it is much smaller than many European stations, this is just as nice and has beautiful classic architecture reminiscent of early Los Angeles.. A stones throw from Olvera Street and other classic destinations, or worth a look-see on it's own.

You will recognize this building once you visit it. It's been featured in films and commercials. Besides being a star it houses a hassle free travel alternative. You can catch a ride from San Diego to Santa Barbara. If you have a couple of hours...More

Besides being yhe hub for all trains in and out of L.A., the city added metro hub when designing our subway system a few years ago... brilliant! This is a beautiful classic building that is just wonderful to visit, even if you're not traveling anywhere....More

There is a greyhound terminal at Union Station Los Angeles. If yours will stop there depends on where you are going. check the route. Greyhound is great at telling you stop overs.
